On the way home from my parents house, my husband and I stopped by Costco. Most everybody knows that Costco only sells in bulk. You either need to be a large family or great at preserving and freezing to avoid spoiling! Buying 10 pounds of onions for $3.79 sounds frugal (only $.38/pound!) until you realize you're looking at a three month's supply. :P
Thankfully, before we actually bought the onions, we agreed that I would dice up several, bag them up and toss them into the freezer. Since 95% of our onions is for cooking, we don't need the onions to be fresh.
I chopped up 6 onions (they're bigger than softballs!) and started to feel my eyes stinging around the 4th onion. Took a moment to walk away and grab my camera. And then I fell in love with my camera all over again! It's been exceedingly hard for me to take pictures in the kitchen with my old camera. Too much bland color, I'm guessing. New purdy camera? Show things with wonderful clarity! Thanks again Mom and Dad. :)
